The Djinang language is the western-most member o-f the "Yolngu" language group.

Most Djinang speakers live either a t Ramingining» or a t one of several o u tstatio n s, all of which lie within about 30 kilometres of Ramingining. A few Djinang speakers live at Maningrida, and at Milingimbi; and a few women have married men who reside on Elcho Island» and live there with th eir husbands. Djinang is not mutually intelligible with any of the other Yolngu languages or dialects.
